You can't make a welt foot out of a presser foot because there is not enough metal on the presser foot to be able to remove enough to do the job, and then you lose your presser foot. Use the web site that ford SR suggested, that's where I got the 3/4" welt foot. For standard welt, 4/32 and 5/32, a 1/4" welt foot is the right size. Your machine is set up exactly like my Consew 226R and my Consew 255RB-3, and uses the exact same welt feet. One final question.....are you feeding your thread down through the guide on the needle bar right above the needle? There is a guide there, and if you don't run your thread through it, that can cause the unraveling you mentioned.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
